After nPerf's review, which has dedicated the quality of the Orange network to fixed and cellular telephones, it is the turn of the Qosi research company to distinguish operators who are serving in their studies of quality experience. in 2018. For the second time in a row, this award was given to Orange the Mobile Operator of the Year.
Average speed of 37 Mbps with Orange
We start with the most popular indicator of Internet users: downstream flow. The average orange is 36.8 Mbit / s, compared to 27.5 for Bouygues Telecom, 24.2 for SFR and 16.6 for Free Mobile.
Regarding uploads, hierarchies remain almost the same: 10.4 Mbit / s for Orange, 8.8 Mbit / s for SFR, 8.4 for Bouygues Telecom and 5.2 for Free Mobile. Regarding web browsing, streaming, or voice communication, incumbent operators achieve the best performance. Bouygues Telecom and SFR do better regardless of everything when sending SMS. As for web access in railroad transportation, Bouygues Telecom is equivalent to Orange.
However, these figures show a large difference according to population density: so the current operators display flows down 54.7 Mbit / s in big cities and only 17.5 Mbit / s in rural areas.
41% of cities have a bit rate below 10 Mbit / sec
Stalls are stronger for all operators in the region. In this case, Qosi wants to add a new indicator on the municipal scale. We learn that 41% of cities have a majority of data speeds of less than 10 Mbit / s, and 8% of cities, bit rates less than 0.5 Mbit / s without the possibility of using data. If we focus on the region, we find that Burgundy-Franche Comté and New Aquitaine total 49% of municipalities under 10 Mbit / s.
But Bouygues Telecom stands out by achieving good performance in this neglected region. Operators have the best rates in rural communes of 4 operators, with an average of 20.7 Mbit / sec. And with it, only 40% of municipalities in France fell to less than 10 Mbit / dt against 66% in Free, 47% in Orange and 42% in SFR (see first table).
In conclusion, we can say that the situation has improved significantly compared to last year. Even Orange, who was first, was not complacent and continued to advance. The New Agreement concluded more than a year ago between the government and cellular operators having to push back a little more white and gray areas. The goal remains to bring 4G to all of France by 2020.
